Sometimes referred to as the Farm Bill of 2018, this bill currently in Congress is set to establish further guidance for legal agricultural growth of hemp and end the confusion between marijuana and hemp.

The bill looks good in the Senate preliminaries and a similar bill has passed in the House.  Voting on the final version of the 2018 Farm Bill is set to take place in late 2018.

Farm Bill 2014

The process of bringing CBD to the forefront in the United States has been lengthy, but with the help of industry pioneers, legislators are making changes to allow for healthy choices and alternatives with balanced hemp products absent of any psychoactive elements.

The most significant start to moving modern CBD extract forward in legality was the Agricultural Act of 2014, commonly known as the 2014 Farm Bill.

The 2014 Farm Bill changed the legal status of hemp in the U.S.  Section 7606 conveyed to state Departments of Agriculture and institutions of higher learning the ability to grow, cultivate, process, and market hemp as long as research projects were conducted in accordance with corresponding state and federal laws.

While a small path to accessing this American-grown superfood thus became available, it wasn’t until an August 2016 issuance of a Statement of Principles by the USDA (also co-signed by DOJ/DEA and HHS/FDA) that federal agencies had a legal basis for the broad federal acceptance of hemp.   Recent clarification has removed most of the legal questions about the movement of hemp and hemp-derived products over state and international lines.

CBD Legal Overview

Hemp, by law required to be very low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is the non-psychotropic version of cannabis with superfood status.  In 2003, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services wrote patents on some of the cannabinoid molecules found in hemp, referring to them as “antioxidants and neuroprotectants.”

Recently, hemp oils high in cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) have gained fame due to the amazing evidence of their miraculous neuroprotective impact on little Charlotte Figi’s life – displayed to the world by CNN and sold under the Charlotte’s Web brand.  Now, millions realize that these neuroprotective, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory benefits extend to a variety of health applications, including neurological issues like mild anxiety, pain from exercise-induced inflammation, and dozens more significant issues.

Many Americans are confused over the legality of hemp because it is not available for general farming like corn or soybeans. Until 2014, only imported hemp was legal in the U.S. according to federal law.  Thus, America is the largest importer of hemp products in the world, mostly from China, Canada and Europe.

HOW OUR FARM TRUSTED HEMP PRODUCTS ARE LEGAL:

The 2014 Farm Bill (Agricultural Act of 2014) changed the legal status of hemp in the U.S.  Section 7606 conveyed to state Departments of Agriculture and institutions of higher learning the ability to grow, cultivate, process, and market hemp as long as research projects were conducted in accordance with corresponding state and federal laws.

While a small path to accessing this American-grown superfood thus became available, it wasn’t until an August 2016 issuance of a Statement of Principles by the USDA (also co-signed by DOJ/DEA and HHS/FDA) that federal agencies had a legal basis for the broad federal acceptance of hemp.   Recent clarification has removed most of the legal questions about the movement of hemp and hemp-derived products over state and international lines.

Kentucky’s leadership in hemp reform, stemming from its long history as the dominant American supplier of hemp products, has ensured that Kentucky’s farmers and processors are in the vanguard of this re-emerging agricultural commodity.

 

LEGALITY OF  HEMP & CBD PRODUCTS BY YEAR:

PRE-2014

  • All cannabis, including hemp, is not federally approved, regulated, or lawful except under DEA license as a Schedule 1 drug agricultural commodity (i.e., food).
  • Hemp imports of material sourced from stalk and seed only had increased materially since a 2004 9th Circuit ruling where HIA won the right to import hemp products, expressly omitting inclusion of the hemp flower.

2014

  • US Farm Bill (Section 7606) creates a federal structure for state-level industrial hemp pilot programs engaging in growth, cultivation, and marketing.  Corresponding state legislation and regulatory structure provides a federally legal architecture for low-THC hemp production.

2015

  • A U.S. Agricultural Appropriations Bill contains an amendment allowing for the movement of hemp plant matter, including seeds, across state lines.
  • Congress signs the Omnibus Act, which further protects the hemp program by preventing federal monies from being spent to “prohibit the transportation, processing, sale or use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated in accordance with” Section 7606 of the U.S. Farm Bill.

2016

  • The USDA, in conjunction with co-signers from DEA/DOJ and FDA/HHS, issues a Statement of Principles that signify the federal acceptance of hemp.
  • NIFA, part of the U.S.D.A., announces that it will accept hemp-related projects for funding grants.
  • The Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) clarifies its support of hemp, hemp-derived CBD, and corresponding agricultural development for its farmers and processors.
  • Various other governmental actors, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, provide further written support for hemp as an agricultural commodity.
  • The KDA issues its 2017 Policy Guide, the nascent hemp industry’s most significant regulatory guide.

2017

  • Kentucky quietly passes SB 218, clarifying the role of the KDA in relation to Kentucky’s hemp regulations.
  • The 2017 Omnibus Spending Bill passes, including previous hemp language and clearly articulating state/international line transportation.

2018

  • Expectations for improved legislation for hemp farming and hemp-derived products are high with the 2018 Farm Bill in late 2018.
